Is there any progress regarding this problem?
I recently encountered the same situation. After some trials,
I found this problem occurs if the account, on which cygwin
setup is executed, is a Microsoft account. This does not occur
if the account is a local account.
I'm getting an errors saying unknown user win-g71n7drq4r6+cyg_server
at the point of setting the password, the password expiry and
This is a domain member machine, yes?
*** Info: This script plans to use 'cyg_server'.
*** Info: 'cyg_server' will only be used by registered services.
*** Query: Create new privileged user account
I don't know why this occurs. As you can see above, it works for me.
This is a completely new setup with the Cygwin distro updated to the
latest? csih 0.9.8-6? cygwin-2.0.4-1?

Possibly related, or perhaps a totally different bug.
On a Windows-10 host: when I use Cygwin *chown***or *chmod *to make
permission changes, the next time I access the folder-tree from Windows
Explorer Security tab, it complains that the Access Control List is
incorrectly ordered and that will cause undesirable results; happy to
say, it gives me the chance to re-order the ACL. The usual undesirable
result is that an app can create a folder /New/ within /T/ but cannot
create anything within /T/////New/.
Hypothesis: we are indirectly(?) modifying the ACL but are not observing
whatever Windows expects for ordering. I know that Windows enforces
"*deny*" rules before any "*allow*" rules; I do not know what other
ordering it observes. I do know that Windows doesn't really consider
the "group" property the same way POSIX does, FWIW.
